Linda Evangelista's D&g Compliment

Domencio Dolce and Stefano Gabbana think Linda Evangelista is the ultimate model.

The design duo have worked with many beauties over the years but believe the Canadian star is the best in the industry because she is both "masculine and feminine".

Domencio said: "For me Linda Evangelista encapsulates the Dolce & Gabbana aesthetic, because she's like Ana Magnani and Sophia Loren. She's string and has character."

Stefano added: "Linda's masculine and feminine. She is! She did a lot of Dolce & Gabbana men's campaigns for us in the beginning."

While Linda is their dream model, Domencio and Stefano admit one of the most memorable moments in their 20-year career is when Madonna donned one of their creations.

Domenico said: "A memorable moment for me was when we met Madonna in New York. We had always looked at Madonna as fans. We would say, 'Ah, can you imagine if one day Madonna dressed in Dolce & Gabbana?' 18 months later the dream came true."

The designers also revealed how they could never choose their favourite collection because it would feel like picking between children.

Stefano said: "It's impossible to say what is our favourite collection. That's as if you have 10 children and somebody says choose one - you can't!"

Domenico added to Britain's InStyle magazine: "We couldn't even choose between our dogs - Dali, Rosa and Toto."
